Protruding

So many innuendos…So little time!

All the Wire's a Mundane Stage


Looking up at a view of the elevated Gowanus Expressway that only Robert Moses could love. Taken from Red Hook, Brooklyn...

Realty Behind Bars

Perhaps a metaphor for America’s ongoing real estate situation…Nah, I just like the composition.  Taken on Broadway in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

MoneyWedge

And just what where would a seedy street corner be without a check cashing establishment, a head shop, sex shop, a liquor stop veiled in 2 inches of bullet proof polycarbonate glass (admittedly, there’s one of these a few blocks from my place of residence), or all of the above? This mini-flatiron structure sits along side the Gowanus Expressway in Red Hook, Brooklyn…

Evening Walk along the Manhattan Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge gets all the glory, but I tend to enjoy the Manhattan Bridge more myself.  The walkway tends to be seedier in appearance (with the graffiti, rust, and subway trains roaring by) than the Brooklyn bridge, but that makes for a less crowded walkway.  More room for me, less tourists in my shots, and since my hearing is already impaired, I don't mind the trains!

The Brooklyn Bridge, One World Trade Center (on its way up), and the Lower Manhattan skyline over a sunset.

The Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, a six lane highway, squeezed under the Brooklyn Bridge.

A few aerial views of Chinatown and the Lower Manhattan skyline…
